The biography premiered during prime time on Monday September 4th. Many tuned in, including his wife, singer Faith Evans, who tweeted throughout the special. There was also a watch party in the rapper's old hometown of Brooklyn, NY. In attendance was Biggie's protege, Lil Cease, as well as Biggie's daughter, T'yanna and son CJ Wallace.
The special was one of the first to be authorized by Biggie's estate.
